About The Film
After a whirlwind romance, a Polish Jewish mathematician (Philippe Tlokinski) moves to Los Alamos, New Mexico, with his new French wife (Esther Garrel, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME) to work on a top-secret project with a team of other young, brilliant immigrant scientists whose work led to the creation of the hydrogen bomb. Based on Stanislaw Ulam's autobiography, ADVENTURES OF A MATHEMATICIAN is the fascinating story of one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century, who remained humbled and haunted by his most momentous achievement.
